Good Afternoon Mr Cooper

Good Afternoon Mr Cooper, originally uploaded by Colonel Blink.

A chance meeting on Little London Street.

Since the 1950s when he first performed at Antoinette ‘Black Anna’ Hannent's The Jolly Butchers public house, Albert Cooper as a musician, blues-shouter, promotor, one time part owner of The Jacquard Club and general good egg has been one of the most influential figures on the Norwich and Norfolk music scene. Even now he has one of the most remarkable voices never to have become famous and his infrequent concerts and guest appearences are sought out by the cognescenti from all over the country.

If you read this I urge you to seek him out and listen to him.
